A Quote by Anaïs Nin on life, becoming, death, stagnation, and growth

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on growth, relative, past, present, future, life, and living

We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on life, ecstasy, escapism, music, reality, and surrealism

I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason.  I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me.  Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go.  Reality doesn’t impress me.  I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another.  No more walls.

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on families, humanization, balance, beauty, life, creation, imperfection, and love

I know why familles were created, with all their imperfections. They humanize you. They are made to make you forget yourself occasionally, so that the beautiful balance of life is not destroyed.

I postpone death by living, by suffering, by error, by risking, by giving, by losing.
